How often do I use the phrase, “Go big or go home?”
When I go to the gym and am torn between going up a weight, I go up.
When I’m at a party and there’s a dessert that looks amazing, I have some.
When I’m trashing up a recipe and think, “Should I add yet another mix-in to this?” I always do.
These bars are a kind of “go big or go home” treat. Everyone knows that magic bars, 7-layer bars, whatever-you-want-to-call-them-classic-cookie-exchange-bars are rich, sweet, and made for indulging. So I took a hint from Naomi, scaled back the health factor (ummmm apples), and added a little oomph with some caramel and walnuts.
- I heartily recommend enjoying these with a glass of cold milk or hot coffee to cut some of the sweetness. They’re also good straight up. And if you ask me how big of a piece to go for, you know the answer. Go big or go home.
- (But don’t ask me how to cut them into uniform pieces.)
